Default Re: interesting to see how booth & grooves go on...

Booth is just as good now as he was 3 weeks ago, note the shift from Evil Genius / Amazing Trainer etc to Haye Lost So Booth's A Cunt. Lack of perspective here. Either he was always great or always flawed, not both at the same time.

I say Groves should carry on with Booth, especially now that he gets 100% of his trainer's attention. Booth talks a good fight, has only slipped up once and seems to have a great working relationship with Groves. The two gel. Going in blind with another trainer is a huge roll of the dice that wouldn't necessarily pay dividends, just ask Khan one fight after [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - he had to move yet again before he landed on Roach and struck gold.

Booth has not failed with Groves, has gained him a good record and a huge amount of momentum early in his career, plus a sneaky win over an Olympic Gold Medallist that everyone puts down to the tactical gameplan that Booth himself chose. It would be harsh beyond words for Groves to ditch Booth because of another fighter.

Was that really PPV? It was for the Commonwealth as well as British title, though. I don't exactly remember having a big night in for that one...must have been hammered...

not that it matters but the interest in Groves after the DeGale win was huge, he claims his Twitter followers shot up from 3,000 to 14,000!
Yep that was overnight! he's at 19,500 now.

Weird thing for Groves is there is'nt much at domestic level to compete with and make money from. May be a victim of his own success e.g. pushed on to quickly, he still has improvements to make and should pack the york hall/mussy hill out and face a decent contender - paul david, daniel cadman then step on it again.

Froget about them guys pal. Rematch Anderson then Jeffries in Sunderland. That would make big money. If George beats both which i would expect him to do he will have the british outright.
